Fees and funding opportunities
To be accepted into the Graduate School you must have funding for your study: tuition fees and maintenance (living costs).
For a comprehensive list of scholarship opportunities for study at all levels, please visit the University's scholarships page and view the information on College scholarships and support opportunities. These provide details of both internal and external sources of funding. The funding sources listed will pay one or both of the fees and maintenance. Please check the eligibility criteria for each scheme before making an application. Scholarships which are administered by the College Graduate School normally have an application deadline of 31 January for study commencing on 1st October. Unless otherwise stated, separate application is not normally required and you should identify the source of funding applied for on your application for admission.
Where 'home/EU' or 'overseas' fees are referred to, you should note the following:
- normally only students who have been ordinarily resident in the UK or European Union for the three year period preceding 1st September, 1st January or 1st April closest to the beginning of the student's course are eligible to be regarded as home students for fees purposes;
- there are a number of exceptions to the above general statement, for example students who are refugees in the UK, or students who are only resident outside the EU because of the temporary employment abroad of a parent or spouse;
- if you are unsure of your fee status and do not know whether you would be classed as an international student or a home student, please submit a fee status enquiry form to the University's Recruitment & International Office.
All overseas students are required to provide evidence that they have sufficient resources for payment of University fees and maintenance costs for the duration of their programme of study.
